Benefits of Vitamin C

Vitamin C benefits your health majorly, as it is a very powerful antioxidant. Your body requires 60-90mg per day, although studies done by Mark Moyad, MD (University of Michigan) suggest taking up to 500mg daily to improve your health.

Vitamin C helps your wounds to heal faster, acts as a natural antihistamine helping you recover from colds, reduces the risk of all types of cancer, helps prevent heart disease, helps diabetics regulate their blood sugar levels, improves symptoms of asthma and much more.  Your body needs essential vitamins and minerals to function properly.

Foods high in Vitamin C are peppers, kale, broccoli, kiwis, berries, citrus fruits, tomatoes, cantaloupe and peas.

Make sure you eat foods rich in this vitamin and if needed, consider a supplement.
